Chinese New Year 2021

12 Jan 2021

Chinese New year officially begins on February 12th 2021 and ends on February 26th. 2021 is year of the Ox.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) currently advises against all but essential travel to the whole of China. Direct flights to China from the UK have been suspended and entry restrictions are being imposed. Travellers should be aware that local and national restrictions can change suddenly and at short notice.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and travellers should be advised to check the FCDO website for the most up to date information.
